Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service

The nation’s mayors and county executives are increasingly turning to national service as a cost-effective strategy to address local challenges. By unleashing the power of citizens, AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs have a positive and lasting impact – making our cities and counties better places to live. To spotlight the impact of national service and thank those who serve, mayors across the country will participate in the fifth-annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service on April 4th, 2017.

On this day, mayors and county executives will hold public events and use traditional and social media to highlight the value of national service to the nation’s cities. On April 5, 2016, the fourth-annual Mayor and County Recognition Day for National Service united local leaders across the country to spotlight the impact of national service and honor those who serve. Altogether, 3,539 mayors and county officials in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico officially recognized the work that AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers are doing to make cities better and stronger. Together, these elected officials represent more than 178 million Americans, or more than half of the population.

Why a Day of Recognition?

As solution-focused local elected officials, mayors and county executives have a unique role in this country. Mayors’ focus on engaging citizens and meeting local needs matches Corporation for National and Community Service [CNCS’s] mission to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement. CNCS’s priority on expanding economic opportunity to create sustainable and resilient communities directly aligns with the goals of mayors. A coordinated day of recognition presents a unique opportunity to spotlight the key role that national service plays in solving local problems and challenges. Participating in the day will highlight the impact of citizen service, show support for nonprofit and national service groups, and inspire more residents to serve in their communities.
